Movie Review: He's Just Not That Into You


A Chick Flick Even Guys Can Like

It's not that guys hate chick flicks per se -- just the ones that are dumb and unfunny (which, unfortunately, is too many of them -- Bride Wars? Sex and the City?).

I'm not saying that women are less discriminating than men. Let's just say both sexes have their blind spots, tastewise.

That's why He's Just Not That Into You is such a pleasant surprise. It's smart and funny -- and even-handed. Sure, a lot of the guys in this movie are dogs - but some of them aren't. And a few that are turn out to be redeemable.

Even more shocking for a chick flick: The women in this movie aren't all saints. Some are painfully needy, some are willfully clueless and some are predatory -- just like guys.
